History & Mission

Under authority of NJSA 26:3-85 et seq. the Hudson Regional Health Commission was established by joint resolution of the twelve municipalities of Hudson County. The Commission has conducted a local Air Pollution Control Program since 1971 pursuant to Section 105 of the Clean Air Act. Since 1986 it has served Hudson County as lead agency to carry out the mandate of the County Environmental Health Act (NJSA 26:3A2-21 et seq.) That statute requires the implementation of certified programs for the control of air, noise and water pollution; hazardous substances and solid waste management. In addition, the Commission is the lead agency for the administration of the “Right to Know Act”. In order to provide these services in accordance with performance standards promulgated and monitored by the NJDEP, the Commission comprises a staff of 13 professionally trained managers/investigatory personnel and an administrative support staff of two.
